Comments section on this story has completely disappeared.  There were comments there a few hours ago!

 

 

I noticed that they do that very often!

 

(Is that so people can't complain about their comment being deleted - they delete them all?)

Yes, I think they delete the whole lot for that reason & because on any Maori issue there will be comments ranging from reasoned debate to

 

outright racism.  It's easier to delete the lot rather than differentiate.

 

I think Stuff's strategy is to run crime stories very prominently when available.  (a form of clickbait)

 

Also in their strategy is to have contributors that they know will be very controversial    ( another form of clickbait)

Not the headline but the whole story. I am not sure KH would be in the market for a rental...

 

 

Didn't they just sell their house for millions, couldn't imagine houses in their rental range would be in poor condition

 

Next thing we know Mike will be going electric or star supporting the present Govt.

Did they? Selling a house to go rental? Only if for a few months while finding something else, surely? Oh, well... Reality stings sometimes.

I thought that was a typo - then realised that it doesn't matter.

Not a headline but from Stuff:

snip.....The recalled batch numbers are 270818, 280818, 310818, 010918 and 030918, with use by dates between August 27 and September 3 ....snip

I've asked the mods to have a look at the above post that has screwed up the page format.

OMG   Property prices are falling, and those who have to sell or have problem properties are feeling the pain.

 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/106855889/qv-data-shows-new-zealand-house-prices-falling

 

So, the title shows a must read NZ House Prices Drop, and the first sentence is as above, a definite must read. Read the article and it says nothing of interest. Some drops have occured, minimal to say the least, particularly when volumes are down, stats can vary more. It then says that volume is down, as is normal for Winter, but wait for Spring to generate interest, again as is normal

 

Hardly a "and those who have to sell or have problem properties are feeling the pain."

Not related to Stuff or NZ Herald, just an evil piece of Aussie click-bait

https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life-and-relationships/these-fake-images-are-disturbing-but-so-is-the-reason-they-exist-20180905-p501wb.html

"These fake images are disturbing, but so is the reason they exist"

"Clickbait has been around since before the internet knew about cats, and celebrities are always an easy way to draw people in.

Jennifer Aniston’s never-ending never-appearing pregnancy, Taylor Swift’s utterly unremarkable romantic adventures, Kim Kardashian’s anything: they all send our clicks slithering through to websites selling hatewear for women.

Everything this says about the double-handed grip of capitalism and the patriarchy dictating envy and self-hatred to women has been said many times before, most recently by Jameela Jamil.

But, just when you think it can’t possibly get any worse, you discover one more thing you can’t unsee."

Stuff's story  https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/south-pacific/106895640/magnitude-78-quake-hits-off-fiji has absolutely no mention of how the quake have affected the people of Fiji. Just a repost of a NZ Civil defence tweet that their is no tsunami warning for New Zealand.
